U18s: Reds’ rally at Newcastle proves in vain

A few minutes later and the Reds’ woes were compounded by another enforced substitution after Murray suffered an injury and was helped from the field with Kobbie Mainoo coming off the bench as his replacement.

It didn’t look good for the visitors but there was more drama when Iqbal scored on the turn to reduce the arrears in the 75th minute after taking a pass from Hoogewerf.

The comeback was on and it gained in momentum six minutes later when Charlie McNeill’s far post centre found Hoogewerf who got above his Magpies marker to head home.

At that stage of the game, it seemed the writing was on the wall for the home side but just when the phrase ‘football’s a funny old game’ was coming to mind, Newcastle had the last laugh as James Huntley scored a late, late winner.

There was a considerable amount of time added on at the end but despite a valiant effort, the Reds couldn’t track down another goal and had to return home to Manchester empty-handed.

Robson visits vaccine training at Old Trafford

Bryan Robson, who himself was taught the basics of how to deliver a vaccination, stressed the importance of it as part of the nation’s recovery.

“As a club, we want to help the community and help people out there,” he said.

“That’s why we have given the stadium up for these training courses. We know that if you get thousands of people trained to know how to do a vaccination because of this programme, then just think how many people are going to get vaccinated that little bit quicker.”

Robson also recognised how important the vaccine rollout will be as part of the broader effort to see fans return to stadiums across the country. “We’d love to see our fans back in the stadium making a great atmosphere – watching football, something which they love doing.”

Roche reiterated the club’s commitment to continuing to support the ongoing national effort. “We recognise that our local community will be feeling the effects of the pandemic for some time and we remain committed to using our resources to support the response to this public health emergency and its social impacts.”

Under-23s beaten by leaders City in derby

The sun had gone down and there was now a chill in the air as the second half began with City once again hitting the ground running. United needed to buckle down and get back to the level we reached earlier but, within eight minutes of the restart, the hosts doubled their lead.

There really didn’t seem to be any real threat when Cole Palmer received the ball about 30 yards out but he had other ideas and, without warning, he hit a totally unstoppable left-foot shot to register his 10th goal of the Premier League 2 season.

United were trying hard to make some headway in the contest with Hannibal constantly running and chasing every ball but all to no avail.
Twenty minutes from the end, City sealed the points with a second goal for Palmer, sweeping home after fine work by Doyle. Mastny made one astounding save to push a Delap drive onto the top of the woodwork while the energetic Doyle was denied a goal when smashing against the underside of the bar.

The best effort from Neil Wood’s side came in injury time, as Elanga, our most dangerous player all night, forced a wonderful fingertip stop out of Ciaran Slicker.
